What an exciting start to the year!  Emma, the beautiful girl we took into our program in the fall of 2013 blessed us with 7 puppies.  2 of the 7 puppies were special needs as they were diagnosed with a very rare condition shortly after birth.  Our vets had never seen this condition as most breeders opt to euthanize puppies born with this condition but we simply could not do this to our babies!  We are so happy to report that all 7 puppies are now adopted and in wonderful homes!  Emma, their beautiful mom, is still in need of a home!  We continue to accept puppies into our program and are overwhelmed by the number currently in need, especially considering that puppy season has not even begun. 

Our special needs girl, Hope, continues to remain with us and we continue to hope that she will find a loving home one day. 

We hope that you will continue to follow all of our puppies and continue to support us in the upcoming year. As always, please feel free to follow us on Facebook and now Instagram!

It has been an exciting fall for us!  We currently have taken in 8 puppies and a pregnant dog who just blessed us with 7 babies!  We are so excited to watch all of these puppies grow and develop in our wonderful foster homes!

Sadly, our special needs girl, Hope, has returned to us and required emergency surgery within days of returning to us. But as we take our dogs back for the rest of their lives, we happily took her back to get her the care she needed. 

We hope that you will continue to follow all of our puppies and continue to support us in the upcoming year.  We hope you all have a wonderful holiday season.  Thank you.

We have had a busy summer.  One of the high kill shelters that we work with took in a record number of dogs in one week which sadly resulted in a record list of puppies and dogs that were scheduled to be put to sleep.  Even though we are full, we agreed to take in 6 - 5 month dogs to help in any we possibly could. 

Given the record number of dogs we have helped in the past year, we are in need of funds to help with costs.  Sadly given the economy, more and more dogs are being surrendered and many rescues are facing the same challenge as we are - fewer and fewer donations.  We are grateful for any donation to help us to continue to save dogs.  Thank you.

Hard to believe that it is already Spring 2013!  We are ramping up for pregnant dog and puppy season.  Just this past week we took in eight beagle puppies that were rescued from a hoarding situation.  Thankfully their mom was saved, pregnant, and whelped 8 beautiful babies - quite a feat for a 15 pound girl! 

We are also very happy to report that our special little girl, Hope, was adopted.  Hope was the little girl that we took into our program after she was poisoned and left to die at the shelter.  Thankfully her new adopters were able to see past her neurological issues and her deafness to offer this wonderful girl a loving home!

We continue to be so thankful for everyone's support and hope that you will all continue to follow us and our success stories.

All of us at Help Orphan Puppies hope that you all had a wonderful holiday season.  We are very happy to report that 2 of our special needs dogs were adopted since our last report!  Porter, our special boy that required emergency surgery to remove an eye, was adopted by a wonderful couple.  Porter has a new 4 legged big sister and is very happy in his new home.  And Duke, our Great Dane that the former owners brought to our vet to have euthanized (he is only 3 years old), was adopted by a lovely couple without children.  He is sharing his new home with 4 rescued cats!  Sadly, our lovely Hope still has not found a home but we are hopeful that she will find a new home soon.

In the past couple of weeks we took in 6 puppies that were surrendered to a high kill shelter after the person that bred them was unable to sell them as Christmas puppies.  All were taken to the vet and then placed in loving foster homes to await adoption.

Thank you for your support to date and we hope that you will continue to support our efforts in 2013.
